Already? Really?

Already the uni season is starting to take shape. There's a couple of tournaments penciled in already to check out...

Saturday April 4 - Sydney IV (Sydney, NSW)
Sat May 2 to Sun May 3 - Ultimate Stampede III (Bathurst, NSW)
Sat July 25 to Sun July 26 - Halibut 2009 (Brisbane, QLD)
Sat Aug 22 to Sun Aug 23 - B-Town Showdown (Ballarat, VIC)

We're introducing a new concept this year - The IVy League! This will be a nationwide competition between unis around Australia, happening from May till September. Stay tuned for more info on this.

University Games is also back on in the July holidays...

Sun July 5 to Wed July 8 - Northern Uni Games (Sunshine Coast, QLD)
Sun July 5 to Wed July 8 - Eastern Uni Games (Bathurst, NSW)
Sun July 5 to Wed July 8 - Southern Uni Games (Melbourne, VIC)

Then there's the big one...

Sunday September 27 to Friday October 2 - Australian Uni Games (Gold Coast, QLD)

Kevin Rudd's little stimulus package should pay for that! Bookmark the AUS website for more info during the year.




The decision was made late last year to have two divisions at AUG this year. Division 1 will be for the more competitive teams, who will have 2-3 games per day (9-10 total). Division 2 will be aimed at new teams and those who just want to party! They will have 1-2 games per day (7-8 total). This also means new teams will be able to bring a small-ish squad without getting run into the ground.

I really should stress this point - No team will be forced into a division against their will. It won't be based on seedings, past results, moon phases or chook lotto. Every team will be able to choose which division they want to compete in. This is something that will be discussed in second semester, so there's no need to stress about it now.

Currently the roster limit is at 16. I will be lobbying to get this changed this year to 18 to allow teams some extra players to reduce the risk of injuries and fatigue, especially in hot weather in Queensland.

At the regional Uni Games, clubs can enter as many teams as they want. However, at AUG only one team per university is allowed. This is a change from previous years where multiple teams could be entered.


Early tips?

BUUF. Justice. Fuck. Yeah.

The Uni Hat tournament is going to be on the 21st of March Dan.  99% sure it will be at Centennial Park.

The Sydney Uni IV thing is totally different, and may or may not clash with the Bra Cup

On a side note.  It's going to be pretty hard to convince people to go to the Stampede AND EUGs in Bathurst...

I think ECC moving back to regional NSW is a great move. Hopefully we can continue to get more unis participating at ECC and get back to the good old EUG days of ~15 teams.

Why do Sydneysiders hate leaving Sydney so much?

BUUF's going to Stampede, and hopefully another Vic team or two. Everyone else should too. You don't win Party Of The Year twice in a row by putting on shit tourneys.

UWA will be there with painters suits on (again)...

In terms of divisions, what will happen with G+G and medalling? Will Division 2 teams win medals etc as with all other sports, and will Div 2 teams player's be considered for G+G selection. I know that usually players are selected from the top 8ish teams, but if a superstar player is in Div 2 will they still be considered?

How many nights will QUT manage to stay in their accomodation this year? I'll give them less than 48 hours!  Smiley

Quick tips:

If UQ show, I reckon they will be strong.
La Trobe will be good and be out for revenge after '08's bad streak of luck.
Moz reckons "it will be harder to make the Monash starting lineup then it will be to win AUG".... But they said that in '08 too...
And the dark horses from South Australia (Flinders and UAd) will always be good. 2 of the top 3 teams - cant argue with that can you!

Anyone know if UNSW are getting organised this year?

Oh and now that Benny Haim is back in action after travelling for a year slaying Wolverines, UWA will be ready for blood.

I know it's very, very early (O-Week not being finished or even started for some) but, if we're going with this idea of two divisions, where is everyone planning to compete?

Serious hats on, people.

Macquarie will want to play division 1.

Newcastle will also play in Div 1. Early signs look like our team will be at least as strong as last year, hopefully even stronger!

As long as I can get another Callaghan against a Newcastle girl I will be happy.

But this time I will try not yell so loud about it.

Two lots of medals. One G+G team, both divisions considered. And yes it can happen - one of UoB's AFL players made G+G from Div2 in 2008.


If UQ show, I reckon they will be strong. - Agreed
La Trobe will be good and be out for revenge after '08's bad streak of luck. - Macca's at UoB now, Jenica is back home. Both massive losses
Moz reckons "it will be harder to make the Monash starting lineup then it will be to win AUG".... But they said that in '08 too... - Yeah, hard for Mozza


edit: B-Town will be Div 1
And the dark horses from South Australia (Flinders and UAd) will always be good. 2 of the top 3 teams - cant argue with that can you! - Wouldn't call either of them dark horses. No big losses at either club, but Joel might not show now that "Win AUG gold" has been crossed of his list of Things To Do

Anyone know if UNSW are getting organised this year? - Yes. Nadine C (ex-SUUFA and Southside) has taken over the club there. They'll be back

Oh and now that Benny Haim is back in action after travelling for a year slaying Wolverines, UWA will be ready for blood. - Whatevs

Major changes to team lists since '08?

UQ: GAINS: everyone, since '08...

BUUF: GAINS: Drule, Macca, Timill, can't recall who else... LOSSES: ?

LaTuf: GAINS: Possibly Eric, is he still around in sem 2? LOSSES: Jenica, Macca, ?



Who's got more to add?

Don't know what Murdochs going to be doing, if we can retain alot of our players from 08 we'll probs play Div 1, but thats just my opinion, haven't talked it over with the team yet. If we don't then say Hello to Div 2!
